Father's Day Gift Guide

Hi friends! Kalli here. 

If your dad is anything like mine, you never know exactly what gift to get him. Since I was a little girl, I’ve asked my dad what he wants. He responds the same way each time. “Kalli, I really don’t want anything, but if you’re going to get me something, I guess I could use some socks.” Thanks for the present idea, dad, but I would rather not get you socks for every holiday. 

To solve this problem, I have created a gift guide so you will know exactly what to get your dad when he says he doesn’t want anything. 

Cowboy Dad

If you’re dad sings George Strait in his pickup truck, Steppin’ Out Western Wear in Pauls Valley is the perfect place to find his Father’s Day Gift. This store has it all – brand clothing, boots, belts, hats, and even tack for your dad’s horses. They carry all of the popular brands from Cinch to Justin, and everything in between.

Fisherman Dad

If your dad’s tackle box cost more than his car, then Texoma ‘T’ Striper Guide Service in Kingston would make the perfect gift! Don’t worry if your dad hasn’t fished for Striper before. This guide service will teach you everything you need to know. This will be a fishing day your dad will never forget.

Foodie Dad

If your dad thinks no one can grill a steak better than him, I dare you to take him to Baron of Beef in Sulphur and his opinion might be swayed. This is a 5-star steakhouse located at Echo Canyon outside of Sulphur. The restaurant has four chefs with worldwide experience, and trust me when I say, your dad will leave full and happy!

Golfer Dad

If your dad wishes he was Rickie Fowler, take him to WinStar Golf in Thackerville for a fun day on the greens. This is a 36-hole property and would be the perfect gift for Father’s Day. The golf carts include ceiling fans, complimentary bottled water, and you can always play a few casino games after you are finished.

For the Historian

If your dad watches the History Channel on a daily basis, then the Chickasaw Nation Capitol Building in Tishomingo would be a great place to take him on a day trip! The building was built in 1898 and served as the Chickasaw Nation’s Capital until Oklahoma’s statehood in 1907. Your dad will have fun learning and will tell you fun facts for days to come.
